A Being unto Itself

February sometimes feels like a being unto itself. A variously grey and beautiful, amorphous, month that calls for patience and hope. And other things besides…

February Toolbox

A soup pot and a sturdy spoon;

red pepper flakes; a daily walk.

Only playing go-seek;

A blanket of wooly heft, a flask of tea;

a pom-pom upon my hat;

writing what the grey reveals.

A jelly roll pan and parchment paper;

cold snap pears; sturdy boots;

believing that the dormant will stir.
